The Borderlands of Ujiixo is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by le Preeg with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.486 billion Ujiixo love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cathartes aura. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ujiixo economy, worth 685 trillion mordleses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 196,725 mordleses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, and halberds are common 18th birthday presents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ujiixo's national animal is the Black Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is love.

Ujiixo is ranked 673rd in the world and 24th in the South Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 95.26 average smiles per day.
